Small. Simple, good food. Very comfortable environment for family with middle school age kids. Cash only. Great if you love Fiats!

Everything is delicious! My girlfriend ordered Penne Bolognese while I had Veal Parmagina with a side of Broccoli Rabe. We both come from very big Italian families and the food was amazing. Small cafe not a ton of room but so charming. If you're into cars and like Fiats you'll love the little decorations all around the cafe. The staff is quick, curtious, and very friendly. Save room for dessert too the Tiramisu is the best I've had in a long time and the Cappuccino was so good it was difficult to put down.

I've been to this establishment several times. I've eaten in, picked up take-out, and ordered delivery. The food is very good and satisfying. The price is very reasonable. This is a very casual restaurant. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to someone.

Fiat Cafe is a wonderful little gem of a restaurant fit into a very small, somewhat cramped space. The food was yummy; all 5 of us cleaned our plates with glee. Cash only, and amazing value for the money -- likely the least expensive dining experience you will find anywhere in NYC.

Very good food
The food at this neighborhood gem is superb... especially for the price.

Amazing how such good food comes from such an unpretentious place. Very small, with crowded tables, but not at all uncomfortable. The chicken piccata got raves at our table as well as pasta with duck confit and truffle. The eggplant Parm was like grandma's--not the breaded fried patties covered in sauce, but sautéed slices, layered with plain homemade sauce and lots of cheese. Best of all, it is inexpensive--even with 3 bottles of wine for our table of 5, it was under $200. Don't forget cash, though--don't think they take credit.

Part of the Neighborhood
The food and wine were nice, not mind blowing, but generous for the price and quite yummy. The evening ambiance was exactly what we were looking for. We went early and the place was empty, but was filling up before we left. A really lovely neighborhood atmosphere.

A little piece of Europe in Nolita
I passed by the cafe two years ago and something
Told me to try it early in the morning. I am a regular ever since.
European staff makes you feel at home and very Welcome. The food is superbly fresh, well prepared, and tasty. My latest meal of poached salmon Melted in my mouth. The fish tasted so fresh as if just caught. At $14 it was a much
Better deal than anywhere. The place is cash only but don't fret
Because the prices are truly low. My chicken Milanese costs $12 while it's $30 elsewhere. I have seen tourists with not enough cash on hand. Staff shows them nearest ATM and trusts them to come back to pay. So you get the idea: homey, delicious, fresh, clean place just like in a small town in Europe.
